Dickens and Mass Culture, Paperback (August 2013)
Dickens and Mass Culture shows that Dickens's unusual success in combining literary with wider popular appeal is directly related to his sense of himself as a mass cultural artist. It examines the ways in which his consciousness of a mass market for his work affected both his cultural vision and practice and his post-Victorian afterlives.
Dickens's Villains, Paperback (February 2003)» View all books by Juliet John
The first major study of Dickens's villains argues that they embody the crucial fusion between the 'deviant' and the 'theatrical' aspects of Dickens's writing. Dickens's Villains locates the rationale for his theatrical characters in his political commitment to the principle of cultural inclusivity and his related resistance to 'psychology'.
